Peter Chou: HTC will launch a WP7S phone by year's end
The premium Windows Mobile manufacturer, HTC, has recently turned to developing Android handsets, burying the aging Microsoft platform in the past. However, you didn't think this means there will be no more Windows phones by the Taiwanese maker, did you? It doesn't take a genius to figure out that once the new Windows Phone 7 Series platform leaves Redmond, not only HTC but most of the smartphone makers will have their try with it.

We have already seen three of the upcoming WP7S phones, but neither of them was by HTC. However, what we now know is that HTC CEO Peter Chou has said in an interview with Elizabeth Woyke of Forbes during CTIA that the manufacturer will indeed release a Windows Phone 7 Series device by the year's end. Hm, we wonder if there will be some kind of personalization to it, such as... a Sense interface for next-generation platforms?

In addition, the CEO has also said that the Google Nexus One is doing just fine with sales, given Google's non-standard marketing, when asked about the claims of only 135,000 units sold during the first two months. Not that we would have believed our ears if he's said something else.

"neither of them" only applies when there are 2 options, not 3. Try "none of them".

Upgrading HTC HD2 is the easiest solution to have a WP7 xD

Microsoft has already said they will not be allowing the HD2 to have an official update to WP7 because it does not have the full physical specs requirement.
